Cisco Partner Summit 2012 Day Four Recap: Thriving in Uncertainty, Cisco 6500 Migration Incentives

April 19, 2012 at 7:14 pm PST

The momentum continues on the final day of Partner Summit in San Diego, bringing Catalyst discounts, additional Jabber news, advice on going from good to great, and more—so keep reading for all the details and a link to a handy document that contains all the news.

In this afternoon’s General Session, Keith Goodwin, SVP of our Worldwide Partner organization, introduced author and social scientist Jim Collins who gave a fascinating presentation centered on the day’s theme of Leadership.

He addressed the question of why some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and why others do not. He also talked about what differentiates “good” from “great.” His answers were based on nine years of research, including six books, which have sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

“The ‘x’ factor and essence of great leadership is not personality,” said Jim. “The ‘x’ factor is humility, combined with a ferocious will.” He also noted that great leaders—and great companies—pick people better than themselves to be on their teams, are tenacious about confronting brutal facts and realities, ask more questions than make statements, and see themselves as being in service for a cause.

To view Jim’s complete presentation, watch the replay on Virtual Partner Summit.

Call for Speakers – FIRST Security Conference 2011, Vienna

Cisco has had a long history of supporting the Forum of Incident Response Teams (FIRST), as members in the organization, as chairs of various programs, steering committee members, and conference organizers. Cisco has also been providing the network for the global conference for many years. This year I am chairing the conference that will be held in Vienna on June 12-17, 2011. To that end, I am asking for some good security presentations for this year’s conference. We already have some great submissions from Interpol, Kapersky ENISA, etc. As chair I would really like to differentiate the conference with presentations based on real-world cybercrime defense. As we look back we see how rapidly the environment has changed over the past 10 years, starting to bring focus on upcoming changes on the horizon with things like borderless networks, externalization of services, and cloud. And then, further, combine that with the increasing monetization and militarization of cyber threats. FIRST would like to take a close look at the protections and responses of the past, and whether they will be up to the challenge or part of the problem. I talk more about the theme and the conference in this short podcast.

If you have something you would like to share with the security community please read below and contact us using the Speakers Submission Form.
